I didn't think I would catch the fever of doing anything on my nails except for dark purple, brown, and red... but I did. I ventured out recently into a lighter purple polish with my ring finger nail being a sparkly pink, silver, and gold color and I kind of love it. I think maybe my next step are these ikat nails...
Dare I say this may be next?? Of course it would be insane to think I would be doing this with a brush. This picture is from a few months ago in Lucky Magazine. They suggest using NCLA's nail wraps. Unfortunately this color is sold out. Hmm... I will keep you posted on how I achieve this look.
Maybe this combo of it would be easier?
This picture is from Refinery 29's instaveiw page. The darker colors I think I could handle for day to day. Nothing annoys me more than my nails clashing with my outfit, which is mostly why I stick with dark colors.
